Ericsson will enable Vodafone Egypt to continue to provide a quality network to subscribers with a new agreement in which Ericsson will transform Vodafone Egypt’s radio network.
With this new agreement, Ericsson will deploy its latest RBS 6000 technology in the Vodafone Egypt network which will allow the operator to meet the demands of its growing subscriber base and continue to provide them with quality mobile coverage throughout the country. The RBS 6000 is a no-compromise, energy efficient compact site solution that supports GSM/EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA and LTE in a single package.
“Working with a partner like Ericsson on such an important project will enable us to meet our customer’s expectations knowing that we can offer all our customers the services, speeds and experience they expect, now and in the future.” said Hatem Doweidar, Vodafone Egypt CEO.
As a multi-standard base station, the RBS 6000 will not only ensure a smooth transition to new technologies for Vodafone in the future, but will also minimize operational expenses and reduce environmental impact. The cutting edge Ericsson technology’s deployment is cost-effective and allows for the development of new, high-speed mobile broadband services, mobile TV and web applications.
“Vodafone in Egypt is witnessing a major upsurge in both voice and data services” said Tony Dolton, CTO Vodafone Egypt “and to ensure we provide the best experience to our customers we need to keep investing in the latest technology innovation with our Partner, Ericsson. We are delighted that signing this agreement demonstrated our commitment to giving our customers the best possible experience”.
“Our relationship with Vodafone goes back many years. We are delighted to be continuing our successful relationship to help them deliver on their commitment to provide the Egyptian user with high quality mobile internet experience and provide them with tailored and adaptable solutions that will meet the demands of their increasing subscriber base,” said Anders Lindblad, President, Ericsson Region Middle East.
The new agreement between Ericsson and Vodafone Egypt will allow Vodafone’s subscribers continue to take advantage of the latest telecommunication technologies and experience enhanced communication services. The company and Ericsson have a long term relationship, which is built on their commitment to evolving the telecommunication experience for customers in Egypt as Ericsson continues to make progress in its quest to achieve a truly networked society in the region.
